Disney has posted a new trailer for its upcoming The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, adapting the classic story for a modern audience, with a few key changes to the plot. The effects look beautiful, and as long as they keep the wonderful music intact, and I can easily see this being quite the holiday hit.
It’s not often anymore that we get blockbuster holiday films, so it’s refreshing to see Disney taking a risk on this one.
Ph LEVEL is back! While Christmas may be over, the holiday spirit is still running through my veins, and I’ve at least set out to catch up on a few trailers that released during my hiatus. First up, we’re keeping the Christmas feeling going with Disney’s unveiling of the first trailer of The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, their live-action adaptation of the fabled stage play.
The film takes the usual Disney live-action flair, and adds some holiday spirit with Keira Knightley, and Morgan Freeman topping out the cast of newcomers. The film is set to release November 2018.
For those, such as myself, that take their levels of Holiday Cheer to new heights, and also enjoy running their own campsite in Animal Crossing, you may now rejoice. Nintendo has kicked off the Holiday Event in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, allowing players to collect Candy Canes as crafting materials to craft items full of holiday spirit.
The items include Christmas-themed couches, trees, accessories, and clothing. The event is running now, and ends at 12:59am on December 26th, on iOS and Android.
Japan is known for its many flavors of many things. Being unafraid to merge the strangest flavors and textures in a bid to create something memorable and unique. Pepsi is a great example, with their latest “Christmas Cola” being released in Japan on November 21st. Typically, Christmas in Japan is celebrated with a delicious cake, and now Pepsi wants in on the tradition, with a new cake-flavored Pepsi cola.
There’s a sweet, yet tart strawberry aroma in a white cola, meant to evoke the creamy holiday sponge cake, most often topped with strawberries. Enjoy!
